Looking for help ?

Hi my name is Diane I was diagnosed with RA about five years ago I am going on my 6th dial drug. I am 51 and I recently had a colonoscopy that came back with seven polyps, four of which were cancerous cells. I am scheduled to get started on Actemra IVs. Is this going to give me a higher chance of cancer or should I wait before I have this? I'm confused I don't understand, I'm scared I also have fibromyalgia I hurt and just want to feel normal please if anybody could give me any suggestions on what to do I would greatly appreciate your advice. Thank you for hearing my story.
